Book Description

Feb. 16 2011
An Azimuth Stern Drive (ASD) tug boat is a high-performance vessel that is responsive, quick to maneuver, and extremely powerful. This workbook is designed to facilitate learning, through both intellectual and hands-on presentations. It teaches a clear understanding of ASD tug maneuvering principles and assists the reader in acquiring the intuitive feel for operating the tug. Text and illustrations provide exercises recommended to build the hands-on knowledge. The book covers the basic elements of maneuvering an ASD tug, through steering, speed, turning, stopping, hovering, and lateral movement. Each chapter provides questions to test and strengthen the skills.

I've been training onboard an ASD for a while and it's cool to have a book the explains the "why"s in a practical manner. This is a resource the may be priceless to ASD owners, operators and Masters that train new guys.
5.0 out of 5 stars What a great technical book to read and what a great teacher the author is. Nov. 23 2012

I have been deeply reading "Learning to Drive a Z-drive" and have found it irresistible. Surely the author Captain Jeff Slesinger has thought deeply on his ship handling skills and come up with a bestseller.
The author has bared his inner self in coming across to the learner. This book couldn't have been presented any better.

I have learned what I yearned for after reading this wonderful book.

I found this book very practical and is obviously written from hands on experience in a language undersood by mariners.
